Appreciation (IPTMC)

I am overwhelmed by the feedback.

“You were great and I personally feel that you have a strong qualities of being a outstanding Anchor ” – This is the feedback given by TM Anshul. Every one likes to hear praise from other but today I realized how great it feels to being appreciated by veteran of a particular area.

“You were confident and did a good job , a slight improvement – don’t be conscious and try to dominate the stage” – TM saurabh (Advanced Communicator bronze level & Advanced Leader Bronze) .

On hearing the feedback, I was on cloud 9 .

I also bagged the Best Role Taker Award. My #2 award in Infosys Toastmasters Pune Club.

I am still in the hangover of the anshul’s comment because I always thought I could never be an anchor .

During my college cultural fest, I used to shy away from any front end work (anchoring) and used to eagerly involve in back end work (organizing).

I always had this believed that I could never be an anchor.

Thank You Toastmasters for making me believe that with due diligence and practice anything can be achieved.

The Inner vOice

 

Time is passing away . With every second passing , time feels like a burden to me . The feeling of self doubt keeps haunting me . It reminds me of predator who are waiting to attack their prey at the time when they are most vulnerable.

 

yet Every time i close my eyes , the inner voice keeps fighting against self doubt and reinstates my faith in myself .

 

Every time i let myself down , the inner voice says to me to “Never Give Up”.

 

This inner voice used to be very strong  but with growing age it’s power is gradually diminishing & i could see the smirk on the face of  the self doubt .

i asked myself – what happened to optimistic & sanguine Prateek ?

 

what happened to B+ attitude ?

Does one failure can make you so fragile and weak ?

I have accepted the failure but i refused to Move On.

 

i waste my time feeling the void in my feeling by watching SitComs or Movies yet this hole refuses to go away . Is this sign of Quarter Life Crisis or emotional crisis ?

Like Always i don’t know whats on my mind ?

I close my eyes and images of ME flashes in front of my eyes – This Me is hardworking and use to believe only in hard work , This ME use to spend endless hours in library and use tobe very conscious about his career. This Me is blissful and cheerful . This Me is living life to its hilt . This ME refuses to give up in case of failure . This Me is a dreamer .

 

I want This Me to be alive .

marine drive

I am sitting at the Marine Drive while winds are blowing my hair.

XYZ is saying ” wow ” and ABC is capturing photos.

They both having being in mumbai from very long time and being here numerous time yet they are still mesmerized by the beauty of the view.

Let me describe the impeccable beauty –

Its sunset and the lights called as Queens Necklace reminds me of candles illuminating the marine drive.
I see most of the people either running or jogging and reminds me the significance of exercise.

Mumbai Crowd is outstanding. Girls walking wearing small shorts along with their dogs in 11 in the night . Yeh sirf mumbai mein hi possible hain !!

vacuum in our life

Your working diligently from morning 9 to late night 10 or 11. You return to home very tired. The first thing we do is that we open our laptop and login to http://www.facebook.com – check notification or messages and scroll for a while. After changing our clothes , we start watching our favorite sitcom or our favorite movie.

Does this sound similar to you ?

Take a breath.

Spot Quiz : do you feel a vacuum or a void being created in your life ?

if yes , let me share limelight of something very important.

You can’t fill the void by watching couple of friends chilling at coffee shop or by laughing on how a guy picks girl at a bar or how a geek entertains you with his eccentric habit.

This is filling of joy is temporary and it will keep resurfacing until you find something concrete cement to fill this hole permanently. This concrete cement is a metaphor for a Hobby .
